Kristin Kirkpatrick

Who do you assume is a more sought after source for nutrition and diet advice? A dietitian, or celebrity with millions of followers on social media? The answer may surprise you. The emergence of social media changed a lot about life. It changed the way we make friends, it changed the way we communicate, it changed the way we feel about ourselves and it even changed how we feel about the word expert. Kristin Kirkpatrick will break down the pro’s and con’s on social media’s influence on the wellness choices we make every day. She will also explore the current status of health in the United States, and why social media could be a blessing, and a curse.
